St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols and Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder are among those offered arbitration by their respective clubs on Wednesday. The 31-year-old Pujols hit .299 with 37 homers and 99 RBI during the regular season for the World Series champion Cards. The 27-year-old Fielder batted .299 with 38 homers and 120 RBI last year. The top prizes in this year's free-agent class each also finished in the top five in NL MVP voting. Others offered arbitration include Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez, Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson, Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle, and Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, reliever Ryan Madson and outfielder Raul Ibanez. Teams can receive draft picks if players who were offered arbitration sign elsewhere.
